I'd also harness Google's 'reach' and use this in my query:

site:archive.org search term here

I've been able to get decent results from within .pdfs, photocopies, etc, as Google (and other 'crawlers') utilizes OCR technology (reads text from images, etc)

archive-diver,

All IA PDF files are searchable. (So you can search within the PDFs because IA files are built that way.)
